Lisa and Michael met years ago while working as baristas at Starbucks. Their story is filled with a “latte” of love!
Before the ceremony took place, Michael met his beautiful bride-to-be at the Dana Point Bluff Top to share a First Look privately before joining their family and friends for their ceremony. As Lisa walked up to Michael in her stunning Tara Lauren gown from Mary Me Bridal, Michael could not help but smile from cheek to cheek.
Lisa & Michael wed last August at the beautiful St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Laguna Beach, California. As the bridal party walked down the aisle, Lisa’s bridesmaids, dressed in floor length blush dresses, tucked red roses behind their ears to tie in the Spanish vibe of the cathedral. Their traditional Catholic ceremony was intimate, incorporating loved ones into the rituals.
While the bridal party arrived at the San Juan Capistrano Mission for photos, guests made their way to the reception at the historic El Adobe de Capistrano. Welcomed by a Mariachi band upon entrance, guests enjoyed appetizers and cocktails in the beautiful courtyard.
As guests waved their dusty rose napkins in the air cheering for the newlyweds, the bride and groom made their grand entrance. As Lisa and Michael shared their first dance as husband and wife to That’s All by Frank Sinatra, the rooftop above them slowly opened, surprising all their guests with a magical touch no one expected.
Along with a delicious buffet prepared by El Adobe, guests drank from the margarita fountain and enjoyed traditional Spanish desserts, celebrating the night with the Mr. and Mrs.
